Herceptin #14/14

The day I’ve been anticipating for almost 1.5 years has finally arrived.  Today’s infusion closed the book on active treatment.  I am now in maintenance and vigilance mode.  I can take a deep breath, knowing I’ve done everything I can to prevent this menacing disease from ever returning.  Totaling 26 infusions in all and representing almost 80 hours in the infusion clinic, my investment of time for adjuvant treatment has been well worthwhile because I have roughly halved the risk of recurrence. I am now free from needles, free from pharmaceuticals, and, I fervently hope, free from cancer.  Free at last!
